• Coronavirus: Eight charts on how it has shaken economies

  • The coronavirus outbreak, which originated in China, has infected tens of thousands of people. Its spread has left businesses around the world counting costs.

    Here are eight key maps and charts to help you understand the impact seen on different economies and industries so far.

    Growth could stagnate
    If the economy is growing, that generally means กลุ่มลับไลฟ์สด18+ more wealth and more new jobs.

    It's measured by looking at the percentage change in gross domestic product, or the value of goods and services produced, typically over three months or a year.

    The think tank has forecast growth of just 2.4% in 2020, down from 2.9% in November.

    It also said that a "longer lasting and more intensive" outbreak could halve growth to 1.5% in 2020 as factories suspend their activity and workers stay at home to try to contain the virus.

    Global shares take a hit
    Investors have been worried about the impact of the coronavirus as it spreads outside of China.

    Big shifts in stock markets, where shares in companies are bought and sold, can affect investments in some types of pension or individual savings accounts (Isas).

    The last week of February saw the worst performance for major stock markets since the 2008 financial crisis.

    European and US stock markets have seen a slight uptick since then as it's hoped that countries will intervene to protect economies from the coronavirus outbreak.

    The US central bank, for example, slashed interest rates in หลุดหลุ่มลับ response to mounting concerns. That should, in theory, make borrowing cheaper and encourage spending to boost the economy.

    Factories slowing down
    China makes up a third of manufacturing globally, and is the world's largest exporter of goods.

    But activity has decreased in the so-called "workshop of the world" as factories pause their operations to try to contain the spread of Covid-19.

    Nasa said pollution-monitoring satellites had detected a significant drop in nitrogen dioxide over the country. Evidence suggests that's "at least partly" due to the economic slowdown caused by the outbreak.

    Restrictions have affected the supply chains of big companies such as Diageo, JCB and Nissan, who rely on China's production and its 300 million migrant workers. Jaguar Land Rover even said it had flown car parts in suitcases as some factories run out of parts for vehicles.

    Customers buying less
    Fear of the coronavirus outbreak means that some people are choosing to avoid activities that might expose them to the risk of infection, such as going out shopping.
